I think Dominique/Dimstar is the openSUSE person who better
understands it, you may ask him. But AFAIK
"Totem/GStreamer+PackageKit" should not "want the 1.0 as well". The
1.2 packages *are* enough, and it should be happy with them. Asking
for the 1.0 one is IMHO a bug.

Packman has a long tradition of providing the latest version. Whether
that's a good idea or not is debatable, but long traditions are always
difficult to change.
